LETTERS – Check out staff switch

WHY has WH Smith replaced most tills at their Central and Queen Street station shops with self- service units – only to pay people to stand and point them out to customers?

Could those people not just have manned the check-outs?

Most people either want a lottery ticket or cigarettes, which are not available at self-service, leading now to longer queues and presumably loss of business at the few staffed tills.

I'm in my 50s now and have been going to the Pavilion Panto in Glasgow since I was five.

I always remember the end, when they ask the audience, "Did you enjoy that? Want mair? Come back ramorra".

Still doing it this year. Pure dead brilliant.

I went to see Sleeping Beauty at Rutherglen Town Hall and the show was brilliant, a laugh a minute.

It highlights some great emerging young Scottish female comedy talent – working alongside Steve McKenna and Raymond Mearns.

It was every bit as good and enjoyable as the big names at the King's.

I would like to wish a Merry Christmas to all the shops and businesses which no longer accept personal cheques.

Thanks to them my ISA and bank accounts are bulging.

YOU asked (December 20), what is the secret of Glasgow's Hillhead High's exam successes. As a retired teacher, I'll give a one-word answer: parents.

Nothing motivates a child to learn like encouraging parents; parents who put their children's needs before their own, and set standards at home for acceptable behaviour.

It's the parents who deserve all the praise.
